This thread is an attempt to help new players become more familiar with the Multi-site Democracy Game and to refresh the memories of our veteran players. I'm attempting to answer the question, "How did we get here?" I've done my best to highlight the most important events in Fanatikou's history, our victories, and our defeats. I've done my best to give an honest, fair, and complete account of the history. I have gone through the secure website archives and every thread in this forum. I have just about read every word that has been written in the history of Fanatikou. That said, there will surely be mistakes in my account of the first four terms of the Fanatikou government. Please post any complaints, criticism, qualifications, praise, and defenses in the thread below. I hope everyone enjoys this . . . or at least likes the pretty pictures.
